  1. Great Topic! Having worked previously as the Director of an academic Tutoring Club which excelled in SAT/ACT prep, and mother also to two college age daughters, I know first hand that stress is the six letter word which defines college prep years. Acknowledging contributing variables, and identifying critical points for change, is time exceedingly well invested. The singular most critical stressor - and one whose impact is consistently underrated - is insufficient sleep. I would love to see you add this to your list and focus on it exclusively in a future blog. Gratitude for your work.
